The role of evidence in the Christian faith (Part 7)

We are continuing our previous examination of how God provides evidence for our faith in him. In particular, he uses the following patterns in the Bible when he provides evidence: 1. God provides evidence whenever he asks us to believe something, especially when he does something new.  2. God expects us to test and verify the […]

The role of evidence in the Christian faith (Part 6)

We are continuing our previous exploration of the Bible, and looking at the patterns for how God works to provide evidence for our faith in him. As a reminder, these patterns are as follows: 1.

Should we put the LORD our God to the test?

Well, what does the Bible say? "You shall not put the LORD your God to the test" - Deuteronomy 6:16 That seems straightforward enough, right? Why did I even bother to write this post? Isn't this an open-and-shut case? Not so fast. Let's apply the principles of Bible interpretation, and look at what the Scriptures […]

"Simon, son of John, do you love me?"

I'm trying my hand at a Bible fanfic. This story is based on John 21. In that chapter, Jesus thrice asks Peter whether Peter loves him. The subtleties of this conversations are lost in translation, as the Greek words "agape" and "phileo" are both translated as "love". You can read more about the possible meaning of […]

The role of evidence in the Christian faith (Part 3)

In the last post I introduced six patterns for how God worked in the Bible to provide evidence for our faith in him. They were: 1.

The role of evidence in the Christian faith (Part 2)

In my previous post, I said that the Christian faith is based on evidence, and that this is how God has always worked in the Bible. In fact, by closely examining the biblical text, we can discern some clear, detailed patterns for how God interacts with us when he calls for us to have faith. […]

The role of evidence in the Christian faith (Part 1)

What is faith? How is it conceptualized in Christianity? In certain circles, it has somehow become popular to think that "faith is believing in something without evidence". That... is just wrong. That is manifestly not what the Bible teaches, nor is it anything that any thinking Christian has claimed. In fact, a Google search of […]
